It’s 1991, and in a peaceful beachside suburb a young woman wakes to find a ghost laying beside her, then before she can blink another appears at the end of her bed brandishing a knife.
Earlier the same evening the woman’s two-year-old daughter had refused to go to bed. Screaming hysterically the young girl tells her mother that someone is in her room.
After comforting her daughter the young woman manages to put her child to bed then retires to her room, but the woman (who wishes to be known only as Karen), cannot sleep.
“As I opened my eyes I saw a female spirit beside me on the bed,” Karen said.
“She startled me, but I sensed she was harmless. I told her to go away, which she did. I then heard a noise from the end of the bed and I saw the spirit of a huge man standing there holding a knife.”
“I was terrified. As soon as he left I wrote everything down.”
Karen contacted a psychic and together they checked every room of the house. The psychic confirmed what Karen already knew: two spirits – one female, one male.
The psychic then organized for six mediums to visit the house to perform a rescue (the removal of spirits) and as the mediums sat down in a circle and began their work a strange tale of child abuse and false accusations began to develop.
It seems the young teenage girl had been abused and molested by her father when she was alive.
The mediums urged the spirit of the young girl to enter the light (which leads to the Other-Side), but she hesitated because she feared that her father would be waiting for her there.
Finally the mediums convinced her that everything would be fine and she entered the light and disappeared.
The group then turned its attention to the man with the knife.
The man had been wrongly accused of committing a murder and in fear of his own life he had grabbed a knife and fled into the woods. When his accusers finally tracked him down they shot him dead.
He had not meant any harm to Karen or her daughter; he had just wanted to attract their attention. He entered the light, and like the young woman before him, disappeared.
The house was calm again and Karen’s two-year-old daughter was no longer afraid to enter her bedroom. That was, until a month ago.
“My husband, who is very sceptical about the supernatural, saw a female spirit in our room,” Karen said.
“It didn’t worry him as he sensed she was harmless. She seems to have left now. My sister has also heard and seen two spirit babies in her house over the past year.”
Karen was so impressed with the mediums that cleansed her house that she joined a group, and now helps others who are having trouble with uninvited guests.

Yes Sir, on second thought I think he wanted to romance me *thinks hard* yes, yup he wanted to romance me. He looked ghoulish. I couldn't see him very clearly except for that it was small, fat and slimy - police says that isn't a very helpful description.

You had a ghost strangle you? That's creepy - did you report him?
nazishnasim on June 28, 2009:
This is cool. Atleast the ghosts there were 'good ghosts'. Not like the only who tried to strangle me last year.
